Well, first off, if you waver about it at all, I will say that you should absolutely, always always always get the road hazard warranty.<p>Phase I:<br>Pothole, RF and RR tires bubble. Need new set of tires, get General Exclaim UHP installed for 680 before taxes. Decide 68 dollars is a good enough deal for road hazard protection. This is friday May 15.<p>Phase II:<br>960 breaks down sunday night, 5/17. Fiance is freaking out because key won't turn, needs new ignition cylinder. AAA call # 1. By wednesday, car is ready. Determined that Euro Auto Works is a great establishment based on price and assistance.<p>Phase III:<br>En route to get fiance and hit Pothole #2, blowout on LF and LR tires. Car rented for fiance. AAA call # 2, R flatbedded. Work remotely all week. Very happy I got road hazard coverage.<p>Phase IV:<br>En route to help fiance hang guitars on wall at barnes and noble (don't even ask: Art Teacher). Try to accelerate and get traction/swerve light intermittently. Car is no longer happy. Pull over, RR tire is completely flat. Found nail hole later. Working remotely today. Determine the whole scenario is pretty absurd. Write post about it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Phase V:<br>Bollocks. Just because.<p>PS-Filed claim with city, and both potholes were filled within a week of me hitting them. Considering selling the 18s as they are just asking to be bent here in the city and going back to 17 inchers. Also considering painting 17s in R gauge blue.
